Among the topics to be discussed are the "Censorship" mania that followed Ms. Jackson's Super Bowl snafu, "The Ipod Craze" covering the supposed, must-have-at-all-costs item; and "The Perversion of the Family," looking at the proliferation of TV shows that include "Desperate Housewives," "Wife Swap," "Growing Up Gotti" and "Family Bonds."
